CnC 2017: The Ninth Annual Concurrent Collections Workshop

October 13–14, 2017 at Texas A&M University (College Station, TX)

Co-located with LCPC'17 <https://parasol.tamu.edu/lcpc2017/>


Important Dates

Abstract Submission: September 8, 2017

Acceptance Notification: September 15, 2017

Workshop: October 13–14, 2017


The annual Concurrent Collections (CnC) workshop is a forum for researchers
and developers of parallel programs to interact on a variety of issues
related to next-generation parallel programming models. The focus is on
fostering a community around the CnC programming model. However, we also
strongly encourage participation by anyone interested in programming models
inspired by dataflow and/or tuple space ideas, coordination languages,
dependence programming, as well as current or emerging applications of
these models.

Participation and Call for Abstracts

The workshop agenda will include CnC tutorials on current and future
trends, talks selected from contributed abstracts, and a programming
contest. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: language
design and implementation, semantics and theory, application experiences,
and teaching CnC.

If you are interested in giving a talk, please submit a short abstract
(between 200–500 words in length) to cnc.workshop.committee at gmail.com no
later than Friday, September 8, 2017.

Background on CnC

CnC is a parallel programming model for mainstream programmers that
philosophically differs from other approaches. CnC programmers do not
specify parallel operations. Instead, they only specify semantic ordering
constraints. This provides a separation of concerns between the domain
expert and tuning expert, simplifying the domain expert’s job while
providing more flexibility to the tuning expert. Details on CnC and related
research can be found at https://icnc.github.io/ and

The CnC workshops serve as a forum for users and potential users to discuss
experiences with the programming, as well as a range of topics, including
developments for the language, applications, usability, performance,
semantics, and teaching CnC.

If you have any questions about logistics or participation, please contact
